    Look at what they said in the past and how wrong they were in relation to how the world has changed since. Reuven Pedatzur has been pushing the doctrine of MAD for some time. In 1991 he wrote the following: "To be effective, an agreement would have to include all the member states of the Arab League (twenty two), as well as Iran and Israel, and stretch from Algeria in North Africa to Iran and the Persian Gulf. The large number and diversity of necessary participants, in itself, is a significant obstacle to agreement. Some of the countries in the Middle East, such as Iran, Iraq and Libya, do not take part in the peace process, while others such as Syria will not join in the multilateral talks; it will be impossible, however, to reach any agreement on arms control out of the context of the peace process." The Peace Process is dead and more than 1200 Jews were killed in war and terror since Pedatzur wrote this. Yet he still blindly sticks to his guns, because that's all he has.
